Yes, the plan is to make an actual oojs ui theme, but I haven't gotten around to it because doing this stuff is complicated. If anyone wants to start one for me, that would be really helpful.

> Compliance with the WMF colour palette

This was the plan, but it kept changing. And apparently we still don't have a good way to just inherit it from a central source in extensions? I'll look into this later.

It's fantastic, it will be my default skin when it gets deployed in

One thing: OOjs UI has a different theme for monobook (apex theme) and for
vector the theme is "mediawiki", Are you planning to design another OOjs UI
theme for this skin?

Also it would be great to have it comply with WikimediaUI color palette (or
make it so only in WMF wikis), just thinking out loud.

This is kind of odd, but probably not an issue with the skin.

I suspect you have some of the MediaWiki pages cached in browser cache
from before you used the skin, and as a result are using them via a
304 response. But the user_touched timestamp should prevent that.
Maybe central auth doesn't update the local one or something. need to
look into that further.

Maybe you got logged out  and then central auth globally logged back in.

I don't know, kind of grasping here, but definitely is a MW issue not
a Timeless issue.

Hi. I did not expected to much, because I did not like any non vector
skins, but this is awesome! Thank you very much. One little bug - when
working in mediawiki and navigating to another page, sometimes it opens
again in vector and you should reopt it in in preferences.

Wow, this is wonderful.

I like this skin and I already switched to it. A lot of stylish minded
developers (like me) will start moving to the Timeless skin soon. Good

Nevertheless, will file in any bugs found :)

If all goes well, we will move on to deploy it to the pilot wikis,

A huge thank you to all the insane people who have worked to get us

most of the way through.
